Sending email with CDO

P: n/a
Hi - getting very frustrated. I would really appreciate some help here!

trying to send email via a form from my website. Have to use .asp and I have
been round and round the houses trying to get this to work.

On my xp pro system using IIS this works - an email appears in the folder

When it is hosted I get this error message. I understood that I didn't need
to set up any details about the host of the website. Lots of seaches suggest
putting in the smtp address but I am not sure what to do. I have also seen a
lot of talk about CDO.configuration but again despite searching I can't find
out what to do.

Can somebody please help me!!!!!!!!

Many thanks in advance

Ed

B.t.w. Ray Costanzo already pointed you to the solution. If you would have
taken 1 minute, to read his links you would have seen (for instance) this...

So are you the host or somebody else? If somebody else, are you sure they
support anonymous posting?


The website will be hosted by somebody else. I know they support .asp so I
assumed that if I used .asp then that's all that matters. Looks like I might
be wrong on that??????

Mnay thanks for the links.

I looked at the first - perhpas I should be less hard on myself but I
really want to understand what I am doing and this looses me...... u can tell
..... I am something of a noob to asp!!!

The second link looks more promising though. Which method should I use? I am
not using virtual server. What does "Using remote mail server" mean?

Thanks in advance

Hi,

You cannot assume that their config is the same as yours.
However, I'm fully trusting that you can use CDO to sent SMTP mail. Just ask
your ISP for the config they might require. Such as passwords or anonymous
SMTP acceptance, and which SMTP server they use.

Cheers,
